is the emergent and incident ray angle equal in all triangular prism as well as the 2 angle of refraction all times or not necessarily at all? can someone help me aid with this confusion of mine.

Note: it was using the olabs simulation by amrita university which has very much inaccuracy of its protractor in the simulation
